THIS HAPPENED IN MY HOMETOWN

Teacher reportedly commits suicide at shooting range
By Journal Times staff
Wednesday, April 1, 2009 5:55 PM CDT

CALEDONIA — A Park High School teacher committed suicide at Shooters Sports Center Tuesday afternoon by shooting himself with a rented gun, according to Caledonia police.

The 37-year-old Racine man apparently went to Shooters, 4900 6 Mile Road, rented a gun and bought 50 rounds of ammunition to shoot on the range. Just before 3 p.m., other shooters on the firing range noticed him lying on the floor and called 911.

Police and rescue crews were called to the shooting range for a man who had been shot. Life saving efforts were unsuccessful, and at 3:40 p.m. the man was pronounced dead by Racine County Medical Examiner Tom Terry.

The man was not accidentally shot and foul play has been ruled out, reports said. Terry said Wednesday that the teacher had left suicide notes before shooting himself in the head.

The man was a German teacher at Park High School, and also taught a class at McKinley Middle School, according to Racine Unified School District spokeswoman Stephanie Hayden. He had worked in the district for over seven years.

Hayden said parents of Park and McKinley students were notified of the teacher’s death through their automated phone messaging system. Counselors were made available for students and staff at both schools today, she said.

50 rounds?

I wonder if he asked the store employee if they sold single rounds.

Don't apologize

God has a sense of humor or he wouldn't have given Rosie O'Donnel a vagina. Hmm, should I chuckle at my own joke or puke in my shirt?

evidence

I wonder if they are renting the firearm yet or if it is still locked in evidence. Hopefully the guy used something useless like a hi-point and not a HK.

I wonder what he used

"Sir, do you have one of those Maadi Griffin single shot .50 BMG pistols or .600 Nitro pistols? I'm not really concerned about recoil, only one -shot stop performance. Okay, I'll pay a deposit, but I promise I won't take off with your gun". Heh heh.

I just wonder if legislation is going to ban shooting ranges?

hmm...

I guess more shooting will just happen in the inner city, if you can imagine that.

people suck. They should just make a national suicide center for crazy stupid people. Where they can have monthly kill yourself days. They all line up on a cliff and jump. Away from civilization and out of the way of law abiding citizens.

why is it that....

suicide is against the law? All joking aside, if abortion is legal, because hey its the womans body, she can do what ever she wants to it, how is that logic not extended towards individuals wanting to kill themselves?

I have always been intrigued on the punishment for the crime...

then the ACLU would not be able to argue that killing a human is cruel and unusual punishment. Then they couldn't set stone cold killers loose on society to wreak havoc again. Pure logic me boy!

I am confused samD

ok,
suicide illegal->killing humans not cruel and unusual->murders free
suicide legal->killing humans cruel and unusual->murders rot for 7 years

is this what your post was trying to say, or did I intrepret it incorrectly?

I think it should be the other way around. I am having a hard time with Flintstone logic!! lol

the conundrum I was trying to paint was the fact that if you are successful in breaking the law and caught, you are punished. As a suicide "victim" you have broken the law, what is the penalty, do you still have your right to appeal, you are dead. How can this be a law? There is no punishment to fit the crime.

Enigmas are fun

that was great!!!

pretty clever in your old age my friend!!

I wonder if a suicide punishment has ever been tried to the Supreme Court?

I mean how could you argue Amendment 8 for this crime?

it both baffles and amuzes me...

just to be precise, Dr. Kevorkian was not committing suicide. He was aiding and abetting...
